It didn't take long for LSU to sway two Redemptorist (Baton Rouge, La.) juniors to commit to sign with the class of 2011. Just three weeks after schools could begin extending official written scholarship offers to juniors, running back Jeremy Hill was the first to make his commitment to LSU, but only by a few moments. His teammate and friend--highly regarded offensive tackle La'El Collins--also gave his word to the Tigers. They are the first two LSU commitments of the class of 2011.

LSU lands first two commitments for 2011 - Brian McLaughlin - The Recruitnik - Sporting News. As my dog would say, "Buh-roo?" These guys are outstanding prospects. Collins is supposed to be a cornerstone-type offensive lineman prospect, the kind we have not signed in a long time. A Whitworth-type tackle. Hill is a very good running back prospect. It is not a big surprise that either will be at LSU. Both were considered strong leans to LSU, but it's a surprise that it is coming this early.
